Building a PLN - Twitter QR Code Tip

I had a great conversation with several of my PLN friends during the ICE Social at #ISTE18. We had talked about building a PLN and getting connected on Twitter. Thanks to Don Sturm (@SturmDon), Mia Gutsell (@msmgutsell), and Robert Louie (@mr_middle_2) for inspiring this quick post.

Did you know that you can share your information using the Twitter App on a Mobile Device using a QR Code? You can also scan someone's code all within the mobile app. You don't have to do anything to set this up, you just need to know where it is.

1. Open the Twitter app on your mobile device.
2. Click on your avatar near the top right of the screen and you should see this menu.

3. On the bottom, you should see a half moon, a pattern of 4 symbols (this is the QR Code), and the home button. Click on the QR Code and this screen will open. 

4. That image above is my code. You can test it with your mobile app if you open this on a different screen. Follow the same steps if you want to scan someone's QR Code. Just click on the expand symbol at the bottom and the scanner will open up. After scanning you will get the option to follow.

Happy Connecting!
